Thrawn - Comic Book Series

Most of you are probably aware, but starting February 2018, Marvel is releasing a canon 6-issue comic book series that will focus on the background of Thrawn.

quote:
Before he battled with the Ghost crew on Star Wars Rebels. Before he was Grand Admiral. He was just Thrawn.

And we'll soon see his story in comic-book form.

Marvel's Thrawn, a six-issue adaptation of Timothy Zahn's novel of the same name, kicks off on February 7, 2018, and will document the iconic Imperial's rise in the Empire - before he was a legend. Written by Jody Houser (Marvel's Rogue One adaptation) and illustrated by Luke Ross (Star Wars: Darth Maul, Marvel's Star Wars: The Force Awakens adaptation), the series will also include never-before-revealed scenes featuring the infamous master strategist.

I will read for sure. I just hope the comics do a good job of emphasizing Thrawn's Sherlock Holmes-esque hyperanalyzation of his surroundings/encounters and whatnot... I really enjoyed that about his characterization in the novel. thumb up

On a different note, is there any sort of consensus on the 'threats' Thrawn was referencing here(he made similar comments in the novelization as well)..?:

Perhaps the Yuuzhan Vong? I know Filoni planned to canonize/introduce them in TCW at some point, but wasn't able to do so before the series ended...

So Cadet Vanto easily couldn't clear that hedge to help Thrawn because....? I mean that hedge barely looks like an obstacle.

I mean other than that, the art looks good.

Thrawn casually owns H'sishi, master of the Yinchom Dojo on Coruscant:

I'll admit I didn't enjoy this third issue as much as the previous 2, mainly because the focus being a Pryce and some things being rushed are why I suspect. I do speedread tho, so maybe it'll be more coherent the second time, but I feel like somethings were probably better explained in the book that they couldn't elegantly transfer to comic form. Next issue looks like the focus is back on Thrawn, so looking forward to that.

They're essentially compressing a 450+ page novel into a six issue comic book series. Things are going to be rushed(or cut out completely) to some extent.

For me the comic is nice because it allows me to put some faces to some of the names from the novel(like Vanto, Nightswan, the various Imperials, etc.)

Thrawn with dreadlocks? Just, no. He ain't no feminazi.

There aren't any to be seen.

Thrawn had long hair when the Empire first encountered him shortly after the Clone Wars(when he was in faux-exile), but that's it.

I wonder if he was raised by Wookiees.

I assumed somethings wouldn't make it, it's something I accepted having not read the book to begin with. Thanks for the further clarification. I'm with you there on the second point as well.

They're going in the unknown regions? You mean we're going to discover what those "terrors" which Snoke dealt off were? You mean....

The threats in the Unknown Regions will almost certainly be left ambiguous in the comic series, just like they were in the novelization.

All we know about said threats is that some of them are, per Thrawn: "far more evil than the Empire, and far more dangerous to all living beings."
